. . . or close enough. The Lions have been granted a 24-hour extension to sell out Sunday’s game, which typically means they have an agreement in place to sell any remainders to a local business. This means those of us who live close enough to Detroit to root for the Lions, but far enough from Detroit to make going to the games a chore, will be able to watch on TV without dragging themselves (and their children, if applicable) to a far-flung bar. This is good.
Louis Delmas and DeAndre Levy practiced Thursday morning, meaning it’s highly likely they’ll be available against the Eagles—and thank goodness; the defense will need all the help it can get. The picture is murkier, though, when it comes to Cliff Avril. Avril had surgery on his broken finger on Tuesday—but, as the Wayne Fontes Experience tells us, Jim Schwartz has kept the details of his knee injury a state secret . . .
In TLiW, news, I’m working on the Eagles Watchtower; hoping to get that up tomorrow rather than Sunday this time!
